    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    What would YOU choose and WHY?

    Hello there!
    What's up?

    So, I'm looking for a new experience in MA. I have a background in boxing, judo and kendo (2 years, 2 years and 3 years).
    I'm considering to join in a Shotokan Dojo or Applied Wing Chun School.
    Fortunetly they are not McDojos and the schedule fits perfectly with my routine.

    I would like to know if you guys have some "SOLID" information about them. Experiences, differences, pros and cons.

    Thank you! (:

    PS: Should I make this post in Chinese section?

    Neither, go back to Boxing or Judo or depending on where you are in Brazil, Jiu Jitsu. If you are going to invest time, learn to fight, don't learn to pretend to fight.

    Thank you for the comment, Plasma, Omega and Bigato!

    I'm not a huge fan of ground fighting, maybe this is just a paradigm. I will see some schedules and if they fit in my routine i will try BJJ!

    Bigato: Maceió-AL! And you? Any recommendation? Thank you!

    I'm 200 km away from Sao Paulo. I know nothing about your city, but if you need some help checking lineage in bjj I may try to help. Funnily enough, I happen to know a guy in your city that teaches Aikido. Just stay away! :-)

    Well, in that case how good is the Shotoakan school?

    Thank you, Bigato! I wont forget it! hahaha

    I think I already heard about him! A friend of mine used to train Aikido here. I believe was with this guy... My friend just left because he had some "problems" with the instructor.

    My training in Kendo is pretty awesome. The people there are very deep in the art and training! Our dojo usually make some internal seminars and championships with Kendo Brazilian Team. Its pretty insane! hehehe (:

    About BJJ, there is Alliance Jiu Jitsu with Daniel Martins! I heard good things about this guy.

    Depends of the terms of "how good it is", Omega Supreme! Sensei Francisco Araujo is disciple of Taketo Okuda (disciple of Nakayama which is disciple of Funakoshi). The training is very hard and have emphasis on technique. And is NOT Sport based, which include all techniques of Shotokan - grappling, knees and elbows, etc. Which recommendation do you have about choosing a Karate Dojo?

    Thank you guys!

    Funny to know that man! The world is small sometimes. Good to know that you're not being fooled by that Aikido guy.

    Well, if the bjj guy really came from Alliance you have a nice opportunity to learn bjj. Great gym.
